  • Revolutionary Filtration Put To The Test

    There are many cool aspects of my job, not the least of which is learning — and sometimes even breaking news — about the latest technologies in oil and gas. When I heard from Mike Dejak, executive VP of Eco-Tec, that the company's new technology could "revolutionize filtration" for the produced water market, I was anxious to learn more about it. However, I was also duty-bound to you, ...

  • Non-contacting solution for Plugged off flow meters in the oil patch - Case Study

    For years Petrobakken Energy Ltd. used inline turbine flow meters to track the flow rate of oil recycled to treaters. But with a high concentration of wax and sand in the oil, the turbine meters were quickly plugging off. The line had to be shut down at least once a day and the turbine flowmeters disassembled for cleaning. This was troublesome and expensive. Petrobakken knew there had to be a ...

  • Guide To Coolant In Oil Test Methods

    Liquid cooled engines and rotating equipment use glycol based coolants because of their excellent heat transfer abilities. However, glycol based coolants are not desirable at all in lubrication oil itself – Coolant ingression to the lubricant is a particularly nasty contaminant for the variety of damage it can cause. Glycol coolants break down in the high temperature engine environment, ...

  • CO2 Gas Hazards in the Brewing Industry

    The hazards associated with CO2 in the brewing industry are well known, yet people still die needlessly every year in tragic and completely avoidable accidents in breweries. Just last year in Germany, which has a good safety record, two workers died in separate incidents at the same brewery. In the first incident, the owner was found dead with his head and torso in a beer mixing tank. It is ...

  • A quick guide to oil analysis for engine test applications

    Reliability testing is a very important component of new engine development. Engineers need to fully understand and chart the engine lifetime performance under a variety of conditions before mass production may be considered. Many important performance data parameters are collected in real time through the many different types of sensors that are connected to the engine in the test cell and oil ...

  • I think I smell sewer gas – what should i do?

    The first thing is to make sure the smell is sewer gas—usually a rotten egg smell—and not a natural gas smell—usually smells like a skunk. If you think it’s the natural gas smell, call the natural gas company immediately and if it’s anything but a very faint small—evacuate your home, office, or whenever it is—and wait for the gas company to give you an ...

  • Columbus, Georgia`s High-Efficiency, Low Cost, Digester-Gas-Fired Power Plant

    ABSTRACTGrowing concern over the cost of power and long-term availability of limited fossil fuel resources for the production of electricity have caused electrical utilities and governments to promote “green” or renewable power. Solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, biogas, and low-impact hydroelectricity are current acceptable green-power sources. Digester gas is a renewable, green energy resource ...

  • Precipitator Solves Dryer Problem

    Plum Creek Manufacturing, Columbia Falls, Montana, installed a PPC Industries electrostatic precipitator to solve a direct fired dryer dust plugging problem. The electrostatic precipitator was installed in a very congested area and the project had to be done so the dryer was off-line a minimal amount of time. Plum Creek personnel relocated existing equipment, poured concrete footings, ran all of ...

  • Issue highlight: Air Effluent Control RotaBed Scrubber: One way to meet Cluster Rules in the bleach plant case study

    The so-called Cluster Rule promulgated by the US EPA at the end of 1997 seeks to legislate control of both air and water emissions under one, all-encompassing regulation. With proper design and application, Cluster Rule requirements can be met easily and economically on modern kraft bleaching sequences using fluidized bed gas scrubbing technology such as the Rotabed, a product of Bionomic ...

  • Another source of methane release

    Mary Kang wasn’t even originally looking at methane emissions. The Princeton doctoral candidate was trying to get to the bottom of another issue: carbon dioxide escaping after being stored underground. During that research, she got to wondering about methane emissions from old oil and natural gas wells. What Kang, now a Stanford postdoctoral researcher, and other researchers found could be ...

  • Influence of relative air/water flow velocity on oxygen mass transfer in gravity sewers

    Problems related to hydrogen sulfide may be serious for both network stakeholders and the public in terms of health, sustainability of the sewer structure and urban comfort. H2S emission models are generally theoretical and simplified in terms of environmental conditions. Although air transport characteristics in sewers must play a role in the fate of hydrogen sulfide, only a limited number of ...
